In just four days, the Doha Tribeca Film Festival (DTFF) team has sold close to 2,000 tickets for the event. The top sellers include Michael Moore’s Capitalism: A Love Story, which examines, in Moore’s typical love-it-or-leave-it way, the causes of the collapse of the century; Anne Fontaine’s Coco Before Chanel, which focuses on the years of Gabrielle Chanel before she became Chanel the celebrity, grand couturier, socialite and one of the 20th century’s first successful businesswomen; Ruba Nadda’s romantic drama about a brief, unexpected love affair that catches two people completely off-guard — Cairo Time; Steven Soderbergh’s Informant!; and Ethan and Joel Coen’s A Serious Man. “I am looking forward to watching Capitalism: A Love Story by Michael Moore… I liked all his works… He certainly knows how to pick his subjects…,” said a 31-year-old national working in RasGas. Moore’s documentary says pirates have nothing on the greedy operators on Wall Street and the banks and insurance companies that merrily loot America with the help of elected officials. Moore’s documentary will be shown on October 30 at 2pm at the City Center, Coco Before Chanel at 10pm on October 30 at the Museum of Islamic Art, Cairo Time at 8pm on October 30 at the MIA, Informant! on October 31 at 5pm at the City Center and Serious Man at 8pm on November 1 at the City Center.
